Can't You See when the power goes out

LAST SATURDAY Pepper Spray played for the fun-loving parafest people out by the airport. We hooted and hollered all night and it was more fun than should be allowed.

About an hour into it the power failed. We hook into the Mighty Adam Yates' PA and lights, and were in the middle of the Marshal Tucker Band classic "Can't You See" when it shut down.

There are two things you can do when this happens. One is simply apologize and wait for the power to come back on. Two, keep playing.

Tim Smith, of course, kept playing. He simply unplugged his guitar, and I wandered out to the front with him, and Justin Sievert grabbed his acoustic and came out, and we got everybody to sing. "Can't ya see, can't ya see, what that woman, been doin' to me ...."

They loved it.

The Mighty One, Frank and Steve P got us plugged back in. And we soldiered on. The moral of the story is to keep playing, no matter what happens.

We looked better in the dark, anyway.
